Watermouth Bay House

Family-friendly holiday home in Ilfracombe
A majestic country house on the north Devon coast, Watermouth Bay House is an enchanting offering for up to 12 lucky guests, with panoramic sea-views and a heated pool!

The living spaces are wonderfully open-plan, joining a large lounge area with an enormous sofa in front of the TV with the dining table for 12, which in turn connects to a huge kitchen with all the facilities you could wish for! Along the walls of the room are countless patio doors, allowing the fresh glow of daylight to flow through the interiors and bring in the scents and sounds of the natural world beyond!
The kids (and big kids!) will be delighted to find a pool table, table tennis and games room with darts and a TV onsite, providing endless hours of entertainment!

Each of the six magnificent bedrooms has something a little charming and unique, and many include terrace access, while all feature a TV so you can get comfy and settle in for a film or an episode in your own private space. We adore the first-floor bedroom with its own private lounge with magnificent views over the countryside and out to the sea! The attic room is for two incredibly lucky guests, with so much room and sublime views from the full wall of skylight windows and a private terrace! Incredible ensuite facilities for each room include a range of delightful touches, including walk-in rain showers, double-showers and free-standing bathtubs. In the family bathroom you’ll even find a deluxe Jacuzzi spa bath!

And finally, step into your exquisite garden! Perhaps the highlight is the enormous private heated pool, complete with sun-loungers and casual seating around a large pool-terrace! Get your tan on in the sunshine and take a refreshing dip in the pool if you ever get a little too hot. And with two full layers of decking and endless seating options throughout the garden, there are so many incredible options for where to enjoy your time together! Your safari lodge style balcony is the ideal place to enjoy the view in comfort.

The home is tucked between the two wonderful towns of Berrynarbor and Ilfracombe, packed with cafes, restaurants and shops with a rich dollop of Victorian history and modern art! For a day out in nature, head to the stunning Exmoor National Park or admire the colourful boats and rock pools of the Watermouth Cove.
